The University 

ON the last day of May, in the year 1850, there met in the City 
of Chicago, at the office of Grant Goodrich, 109 Lake Street, 
near Dearborn, nine men, Richard A. Blanchard, Jabez K. 
Botsford, Andrew J. Brown, Henry W. Clark, John Evans, Grant 
Goodrich, Zadoc Hall, Richard Haney, and Orrington Lunt, to con- 
sider the founding of a university in the vicinity of Chicago. They 
agreed that "the interests of Christian learning demand the immediate 
establishment of a University in the North-west," and appointed a 
committee to petition the General Assembly for a charter. January 
28, in the next year, 1 851, Governor French signed the Act that in- 
corporated "the Trustees of the Northwestern University." The 
name of the corporation has since been changed to Northwestern 

The first Board of Trustees consisted of thirty-six persons, some of 
whom were representatives of annual conferences of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church and some residents of Chicago or vicinity. The 
corporation as at present constituted consists of thirty-six trustees 
elected by the Board, and two elected by each of three annual con- 
ferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church, making a total of 

The charter provides that a majority of the Board shall be members 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church, but that no particular religious 
faith shall be required of those who become students at the institution. 

Amendments have provided that other chartered institutions may 
become departments of the University; that all property of whatever 
kind or description belonging to or owned by the said corporation 
shall be forever free from taxation for any and all purposes; that no 
spirituous, vinous, or fermented liquors shall be sold under license or 
otherwise, within four miles of the location of the University. 

After considering several locations in the vicinity of Chicago, the 
Trustees selected for the University a tract of land on the shore of 
Lake Michigan, twelve miles north of the heart of Chicago. Here in 
1855 the first University building was erected, and about this loca- 
tion has grown up the City of Evanston, a beautiful residential city 
of thirty thousand inhabitants. The professional schools of Medicine, 
Law, Pharmacy, Dentistry, and Commerce are situated in the city 
of Chicago. 

Dental School 

THE DENTAL SCHOOL was founded and is maintained for 
the purpose of preparing young men and young women in the 
most thorough manner for the practice of dentistry, and for 
the promotion of dental science and dental literature. 

The Dental School was organized in 1887 and three years later 
became a department of the University. In 1896 it absorbed the 
American College of Dental Surgery and for some years occupied the 
building on Franklin and Madison Streets, Chicago, formerly occupied 
by that school. It is now located in Northwestern University Build- 
ing, at the corner of Lake and Dearborn Streets, Chicago, occupy- 
ing the upper three floors of the building, over 60,000 square feet. 

The clinic room, sufficient in extent to accommodate the great 
clinic and the offices connected with it, is of the best design of con- 
struction, consisting of a single room with arched ceiling. It is on the 
sixth floor, with free light on two sides and abundant skylight. Ad- 
joining the operative clinic is the prosthetic clinic, and on the same 
floor is the senior prosthetic laboratory for crown and bridge work, 
the laboratory for porcelain and cast metal inlay work, an impression 
room, and two rooms and waiting room for extracting, and a room 
devoted to radiographic work. The lecture rooms, three in number, 
are arranged on the amphitheater plan ; each accommodates 225 stu- 
dents. Two are for the ordinary class lecture work, and one for 
the oral surgery clinic which has a waiting-room for surgical patients, 
a room for diagnosis and the preparation of patients, and a recovery 
room with sufficient beds for the temporary care of patients. There 
are eight recitation rooms, each accommodating thirty-five or more 
students. Other rooms are the anatomical laboratory, which is 
placed well apart; the first year and the second year prosthetic 
laboratories; the operative technic laboratory; the first and second 
year laboratories for histology; the laboratory for general pathology 
and bacteriology, the laboratory for materia medica, and for physics; 
the photographic laboratory, the students' reading room, the library 
and the museum. 

A new laboratory for scientific research has been recently equipped 
with every facility for advance study of the many unsolved problems 
which confront the dental profession. This laboratory has every 
convenience for bacteriological study, animal experimentation, and 
the study of human material from the general and oral surgery 

Northwestern University Building is in the transportation center 
of over three millions of people living within a radius of forty miles, 
a location especially advantageous for obtaining the great number of 
clinical patients needed in a dental school. 


Situation and Surroundings 

The central location of the school and its convenient access from 
every point affords many and peculiar advantages to its students. 
It gives them the widest possible range of choice of residence while 
attending the school, without inconvenience in coming and going. 
It also gives the school the widest range of territory from which to 
draw the extensive clinic so necessary to a great dental school. The 
patients for this clinic come from all parts of the city of Chicago 
and its suburbs. The personal influence of the students of the school, 
each one of whom draws from his own friends and acquaintances, made 
in and about his place of residence, is an invaluable adjunct to the 
number who come simply as acquaintances of the school. Patients 
who come as the friends of students make up the personal clinical 
practice of the individual student. 

In this the out-of-town students seem to be in no respect less 
favored than the student whose home is in the city. This gaining, 
and holding, a personal clinical practice under the supervision of the 
instructors in the clinic rooms has come to be one of the features 
of this school that has a telling effect upon the after-practice of its 
students. By this plan of work the student not only learns the theory 
of practice and the manipulations of practical operations in dentistry, 
but he passes at once to the work of real experience in building a 
practice for himself; in gaining that skill in professional comity and 
personal manner between himself and his patients, which is as neces- 
sary to him in after years, in drawing together and maintaining a 
practice, as his knowledge of dental diseases and his skill in their 

For these reasons the residence of students in groups in widely 
different portions of the city is favored. This also gives the benefits 
of a more homelike life, while giving in the aggregate a far better 
conception of life in a great city and decidedly better opportunity 
to draw upon its advantages, while shunning the disadvantages of 
large gatherings of students in a single locality. 

Chicago is a great city and gives many opportunities to the stu- 
dent who learns to avail himself of them. Lincoln Park on the 
north offers, besides its beautiful pleasure grounds, some extensive 
botanical gardens and winter conservatories, where all manner of 
plants may be enjoyed and studied; a fine zoological collection, 
where a large variety of animal and bird life may be studied, and 
the Museum of Natural History, in which there is a very large 
collection of birds, animals and fossil remains of extinct animal life. 
Jackson and Washington Parks on the south, besides their ex- 
tensive pleasure grounds, also offer splendid botanical gardens and 


winter conservatories, while the Field Columbian Museum offers 
a rare collection of Natural History specimens especially suited for 
the study of comparative dental anatomy, of modern and ancient 
skulls and the condition of the teeth in the various races and types 
of men in different ages. The admission to this museum is free to 
students on presentation of their matriculation tickets to this school. 
The Art Institute of Chicago is located within easy walking 
distance of the School; it offers many free admission hours, making 
its cultural opportunities conveniently available. 

Other Libraries 

A number of libraries are accessible to students who have taste 
for study, or for looking up subjects of scientific or literary interest, 
or in connection with special studies. 

The University library collections offer very abundant facili- 
ties for students. They are ample in the number of books adapted 
to the different schools and are so situated as to be easily accessible; 
generally within the school buildings. They consist of: 

The College collection. 

The Law collection. 

The Medical collection. 

The Pharmacy collection. 

The Theodore Menges Library of the Dental School, and 

The Theological collection. 

Chicago Library (630,227 volumes, July, 191 5) is on Michi- 
gan Avenue and Washington Street, five minutes' walk from the 
school. It is one of the finest libraries in the country. Students 
may receive books from this library when vouched for by responsible 
persons known to the officials. This library has also many branch 
offices in different parts of the city, from which books may be re- 
ceived on application. These are convenient to many of the boarding 
places of students. 

The Newberry Library is very large (355,127 volumes, July, 
I 9 I 5)> an d> besides general works, has also a large medical and 
dental library. It is on North Clark Street and Walton Place, and 
may be reached in a ten minutes' walk. This is a reference library, 
and books can be used only in its reading rooms. 

The John Crerar Library (344,510 volumes, July, 1915) 
occupies one and one-half floors in the Marshall Field Building, 
corner Wabash Avenue and Washington Street. It is devoted 
mainly to the natural, the physical and the social sciences, with their 
applications. It is a most excellent collection of books. It is a ref- 
erence library, and its books are used only in its reading rooms.

Admission and Instruction 


A candidate for admission to the Dental School for the year 
1916-1917 will be accepted — (1) upon presentation of a diploma, 
or equivalent certificate, from an accredited high school or secondary 
educational institution which requires four years for the completion 
of its course, and not less than 15 High School units before gradu- 
ation; or (2) upon passing a satisfactory examination before a duly 
authorized State Examiner or Board of Examiners, under the direc- 
tion and supervision of a Superintendent of Public Instruction, or 
like officer, of a state, and presenting from such authority a certificate 
showing that the holder is entitled to not less than 15 High School 
units of credit made up from the subjects included in the subjoined 
list; or (3) upon presenting evidence that he has been admitted to 
the Liberal Arts department of an accredited university or college 
without conditions. 

A unit is a course of study requiring daily recitations on one topic 
for a full school year. No student will be admitted who carries any 
conditions in this entrance requirement. 

This School will receive no student who is not present within 
ten days after the opening day of the session in each year, or in case 
of illness properly certified by the attending physician, within twenty 
days after the opening day. The record of attendance is kept from 
the opening day and students who may be admitted at a later day will 
lose their attendance credit for the intervening period. 

Undergraduate students are not received for special courses in 

Students registering agree thereby to accept the discipline im- 
posed by the Faculty. 

It is desirable that students should register early, since the order 
of assignment of seats in the lecture halls is based upon the order 
of registration. 

Beginning with the year 1916-1917 students will be required 
to have not less than 3 units in *English, 1 unit in Algebra and 1 
unit in Plane Geometry. Other units may be selected from the 
subjects enumerated below. Under the head of Subjects not Speci- 
fied, Domestic Science, Drawing, Bookkeeping, Stenography, Agri-

Students wishing credit for courses parallel to courses required in 
this School, should bring credentials showing the time spent on these 
subjects and should present their note books written in these courses. 
No credit will be allowed for high school chemistry. 

Students who present certificates from other recognized dental 
schools covering subjects required in this School, may be credited with 
such studies if their preliminary education was such as would have 
admitted them to this School as Freshmen, and if the credentials are 
satisfactory to the Dean and to the professors in the respective depart- 
ments; but credits are not accepted unconditionally. The Faculty 
reserves the right to examine any applicant for advanced standing, if 
in its judgment that should be desirable. When admitted to the 
third year the candidate must do one full year's work in this School. 

Graduates from recognized schools in medicine are credited with 
one year of time. 

Students who have completed two successful years in an accredited 
medical school, that requires two years of previous college work, may 
be credited with one year of advanced standing. 


Examinations for advanced standing and for the removal of con- 
ditions in the Dental course will begin on September 25th, 1916 — one 
week before the course begins — and no make-up examinations will be 
given at a later time. 

Course for the Degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery 

The course covers three years. The year begins on the first 
Tuesday in October and closes on Commencement Day of the Uni- 
versity in June. There are not less than thirty-two weeks of actual 
instruction given, six days in each week. 

Beginning with 191 7-19 18 the course will be extended to four 

Graduate students desiring to pursue special studies may be re- 
ceived at any time. 

A postgraduate, or practitioner's, course has been arranged which 
begins the first Monday in February of each year and continues 
through four full weeks. 


The studies of the course are grouped by departments, the work 
of each department proceeding from the general and fundamental 
subjects to the specialized and advanced. 

The work in the departments is planned with reference to that 
of other departments, and the greatest care is taken that the whole 
shall be so correlated that the student in taking up a new subject 
will find himself prepared by work done in other departments. 



This course leads to the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery. 
The school year begins the first Tuesday in October and closes the 
second Wednesday in June. This course will not be offered after 
the year 1916-1917. 


This course also leads to the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery 
and covers a period of four years of collegiate study, each year 
covering the same period of time as that named in the three-year 
course. It is optional during the year 1916-1917, but will be re- 
quired beginning with the year 1917-1918. 


Combined Courses 

Students who desire to obtain the Bachelor of Science and Doctor 
of Dental Surgery degrees may enroll on a combined Literary and 
Dental course, and thus shorten the required time for earning the 
two degrees from seven to six years. This privilege is open to stu- 
dents who during their first three years have maintained a uniform 
record of good scholarship. A candidate for the degree of Bachelor 
of Science who has been a student in the College of Liberal Arts for 
at least one year may enroll upon the combined course. 

Schedule of Courses 

During the session of 191 5-1 91 6 the general plan of teaching 
was changed by the division of classes into small sections for reci- 
tation and laboratory periods, in order that the student might 
receive more thorough instruction and be brought into closer relations 
with the professors and other instructors. To accomplish this, the 
building was remodeled to provide necessary additional rooms and 
laboratory facilities. The teaching staff was also increased in every 

Students are expected to take the courses in the order enumer- 
ated, but some deviation from this rule may be allowed in cases 
approved by the Faculty. 

Each of the departments is presented under the headings as given

day during the school year, and from 9 A. M. to 5 P. M. of each 
week day during the summer vacation. It is at all times abundantly 
supplied with patients. It is the intention that this clinical practice 
shall be as much like an actual dental practice as possible. The devel- 
ment of the ability to obtain and hold a practice, the observance of 
professional courtesy toward patients essential to personal success, is 
regarded equal in importance to the development of manipulative 

General Statements 

Requirements for Degree 

The degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery is conferred upon stu- 
dents recommended therefor by the Faculty of the School. Candi- 
dates are recommended who have attended the required courses of 
lectures, who have passed satisfactorily all required examinations in 
the subjects of study; who have completed the required clinical and 
laboratory work; who in the judgment of the Faculty are of fit moral 
character and are 21 years of age; and who have discharged in full 
all financial obligations to the University. 

The Library and Reading Room 

The Library and the adjoining Reading Room occupy, together 

with the attached Journal Reading Room, 3,800 feet of floor 

space. It is furnished with reading tables and chairs for about one 

hundred students. The Library contains 3,338 volumes of books on 


dental and collateral subjects; a fine supply of dictionaries and encyclo- 
pedias conveniently placed in the Reading Room for easy consulta- 
tion; and a nearly complete list of the dental journals that have been 
published in the English language, with about 17,000 duplicate num- 
bers. The books most used by the students are duplicated, up to 
six or twelve, and a few to fifteen copies. The books and journals 
may be used in the Reading Room without restriction, and when 
the duplication of volumes will allow, they may be drawn out as a 
circulating library. The library will be open every week day and 
evenings during the school year until ten o'clock P. M. excepting 
Saturday evenings. 


The Museum is open to inspection and study. The cases are 
arranged to show the specimens to the best advantage. 

Recently the very extensive private collection of Dr. William 
Bebb has been added to the Museum under the title of the Bebb 
Collection.. This collection consists of paleontological and modern 
animal and human bones, skeletons and skulls; many varieties of 
preserved fur animals, and a very choice collection of ancient and 
modern-obsolete dental instruments, tools and equipment; many 
volumes of rare old books on dentistry in various languages; and 
engravings, paintings, lithographs and cartoons illustrative of the 
development of dentistry. 

All of these have been arranged in most attractive manner for 
exhibition and study. It is believed that the Museum itself and its 
masterly arrangement by Dr. Bebb's skilled hands is one of the best 
of its kind in this country. 

The comparative anatomy specimens are, with the exception of 
the gorilla and chimpanzee, of which there are full skeletons, heads 
with the teeth. There is a sufficient number of varieties of each of 
the several orders to afford specimens of every kind of tooth form 
and of every variety of placement in mammals, saurians, and snakes, 
with a large variety of fishes. 

The principal specimens of human skulls are, first, an excellent 
mounting of the separated bones of the adult; second, a fine set of 
dissections in a series showing the development of the teeth and the 
roots from the first appearance in the fetus to the full adult devel- 
opment, and illustrating the absorption of the roots of the deciduous 
teeth, the shedding process, and the replacement by permanent teeth ; 
also the absorption of the alveolar processes after the loss of teeth, 
with the changes that occur in the form of the bones of the jaws 
from childhood to old age. This is an exceptionally complete and 


valuable set of specimens. There is also a variety of ordinary human 

The Museum contains also a valuable collection of human teeth 
of abnormal forms; a very full and complete set of specimens illus- 
trating interproximal wear and the flattening of the points of inter- 
proximal contact. It is especially rich in casts of cases of super- 
numerary teeth ; some illustrations of the very early forms of artificial 
teeth, of manufactured porcelain teeth, and of dental instruments, 
illustrating the development in these lines. This collection has 
been made in the School largely by students and by alumni, and 
is being continually increased by donations from those who have met 
with specimens unusual or rare in practice. Such donations are 
requested from all practitioners to assist in building up this great 
museum of abnormal conditions of teeth and of associated parts for 
the benefit of dental education. 

It also contains a most complete representation of the progress 
of Dental Hygiene and Prophylaxis as represented by the progressive 
steps of the development of thetooth brush, and a complete collection 
of dental instruments and appliances now obsolete in modern prac- 
tice of dentistry. 


A dental scholastic honor society, the Omicron Kappa Upsilon, 
has been formed upon the initiative of Northwestern University 
Dental School. 

Membership is awarded to students who throughout their dental 
course have met every requirement without condition or failure, and 
whose record of grades earned during their entire course gives them 
highest rank. Only twelve per cent of the graduating class of each 
year can achieve the honor of such membership. 


Text-books and reference books will be on sale in the Library of 
the school at publishers' prices. There will be a small profit from 
the sale of these books, which will be used for the benefit of the 
library. Students are invited to purchase their books in the school 
and aid the library. Each student will be required to have the books 
designated below before participating in either recitation or labo- 
ratory exercises. The Reference books are in the library and may 
be used as needed.

The instruments essential to the students in the several depart- 
ments of the school have been carefully studied and determined. 
Much care has been taken in the selection of the instrument sets that 
the variety of forms may be sufficient for the student's needs without 
being excessive. Close study of this subject and long, careful obser- 
vation of students and the progress they make in the attainment of 
manipulative skill show their progress to be closely related to their 
instrument equipment. Therefore this school must demand that the 
instrument sets required be obtained by each student as a condition 
to his continuance in school work. 

In operative dentistry it is found that a close adherence to the 
formula plan, in the study of cutting instruments particularly, is 
essential in teaching the important subject of cavity preparation, and 



this will be carried out critically in all the departments of the school. 
This teaching is begun in the technic classes and the same lines of 
instruction are followed progressively by teachers and demonstrators 
in all of the departments to the end of the Senior year, the same 
instrument sets being used throughout the course of study. 

In prosthetic dentistry and in the several laboratories a similar 
care as to instruments is maintained. 

The instruments in the list are required because they are essen- 
tial to the student's progress, and students must provide them. 
Students should not bring with them, nor purchase, instruments of 
other patterns, for they cannot be received as equivalents of the 
required sets. They are the same as those that have been required in 
former years. No student is required to make changes in his instru- 
ment sets during his three years' course, and these instruments form 
his instrument equipment for entering practice after graduation. 

Instruments and appliances are required to be of form 
and quality approved by the school. Each student will be required 
to present a card from the proper official of the school showing that 
he has his complete equipment, before he will be permitted to partici- 
pate in either recitation or laboratory exercises. This card may be 
obtained on or after September 25, 1916.

Summer Clinics 

The clinic rooms will be open all the year for the benefit of 
students who may wish to gain greater experience in clinical practice 
under competent supervision. The number of demonstrators during 
the summer will be ample for the class that may choose to remain 
with the school. The clinical material is abundant, and an excellent 
opportunity is afforded for clinical practice. 

The value and adequacy of the clinical instruction and experi- 
ence in practice to students is inestimable. The extent of it can be 
best understood by an examination of the subjoined condensed tabular 
statement, extracted from the Examiner's report for the year ending 
June 30, 1916: 

191 5 General Special Total 

July 656 255 911 

August 781 257 1,038 

September 807 275 1,082 

October 1,091 1,061 2,152 

November 898 888 1,786 

December 791 547 1,338 


January 801 837 1,638 

February 877 686 1,563 

March 918 895 1,813 

April 800 737 i,537 

May 634 373 1,007 

June 531 196 727 

Carried forward from last year .... 1,526 

9,585 7,007 18,118 

The special patients are assigned to such students of their ac- 
quaintance as they ask to have take care of their cases, while the 
general patients are assigned by the Examiner to such students as 


need the particular experience and practice that their cases involve. 
Many of these general patients have come to the school for a num- 
ber of years and continue to come in the same manner as they would 
go to the office of a dental practitioner. The school has thus ac- 
quired a very large clinic, really large enough for the instruction of 
a fairly large class of students, but the students are encouraged to 
have their friends ask for their especial services, as a step in the 
direction of the teaching of practice building. 

The operations performed for these 18,118 patients during the 
year were 88,049 in the Operative, 6,047 in the Prosthetic, 379 in 
the Oral Surgery and 1,980 in the Orthodontia Department; a total 
of 96,455 separate operations. Among the operations performed in 
the Operative Clinic were: 

20,086 fillings of all descriptions. 
4,556 root fillings. 
1,298 pulps devitalized. 
1,992 pulps removed under cocain. 
1,030 dead pulps removed.

386 root canal treatments. 

197 alveolar abscess treatments. 

3 cases of apical pericementitis treated. 

133 cases of chronic suppurative pericementitis treated. 
2 bleachings. 
5,632 cases of removal of calcareous deposits. 
15,826 cases of extraction. 

625 cases of administration of general anesthetics. 
3,580 cases of administration of local anesthetics. 

4 porcelain inlays. 
1,672 cast gold inlays. 

In the Prosthetic Department were made and inserted: 

264 gold and porcelain bridges 710 teeth 

541 shell crowns 541 teeth 

98 Richmond crowns 98 teeth

There were 710 plates, crowns and bridges repaired. 

Of the 1,572 artificial dentures inserted there were: 
22 gold plates. 
13 aluminum plates. 
1,529 vulcanite plates. 
8 Watts' metal.

Rooms and board may be obtained at $6.00 to $9.00 a week. 
Rooms without board, furnished or unfurnished, may be had at

A department of the Y. M. C. A. is maintained in our Univer- 
sity Building, which looks especially to the students' interest in this 

In case students are compelled to do some outside work to assist 
them while attending school, this department will also endeavor to 
secure such employment as the student may be able to do without 
detriment to his educational work. 


The University dormitories are situated on the North Campus 
near the University Gymnasium, and within a five-minute walk to the 
Elevated trains with direct service to Chicago. 

Applications for the reservation of rooms should be made to the 
Secretary of the Dental School and should be accompanied by a 
deposit of $10.

The annual clinics will be held Tuesday, June 12, 191 7, at the

Through the medium of the Journal a keener interest has been 
aroused among the members of our Association. 

The Journal is a medium for the publication of articles of interest 
to Northwestern alumni and for the exchange of friendly greetings. 
The Alumni Association and the Journal exist for the purpose of 
maintaining and advancing all things of mutual interest to the alumni 
and the school. 

All members of the Association in good standing will receive the 
Journal. Any graduate of the Northwestern University Dental 
School may become a member of the Alumni Association upon pay- 
ment of the membership fee of one dollar and dues of fifty cents 

We ask that the alumni support both the Association and the 
Journal even stronger than in the past, and cooperate earnestly with 
the officers in making our official publication a still greater success.
